Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty has spoken about Derek McInnes’ decision not to take over at Rangers.
After months of speculation, the Aberdeen boss decided to remain at Pittodrie following talks with club chairman Stewart Milne.
McInnes’s decision has lead to the Rangers board keeping Murty as caretaker manager until the end of year at least.
And as quoted by Rangers’ official Twitter account on Friday, Murty has admitted that he respects the decision made by the Aberdeen manager.
He said: “I am not going to come out and condemn someone for not taking this role.
“Someone has decided not to come to this football club and I respect that decision.”
GM: I am not going to come out and condemn someone for not taking this role. Someone has decided not to come to this football club and I respect that decision.

Caretaker boss Murty has had up and down results since taking over as interim manager in October following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha.
He won his first two matches in charge against Hearts and Partick Thistle, then suffered damaging defeats to Hamilton and Dundee.
However, he then bounced-back and won the admiration of the support with two wins in five days against Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen, as the Gers leapfrogged the Dons into second place in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers have the chance to win three games in a row in the league for the first time in a year when they take on Ross County at Ibrox, before a match in midweek against Neil Lennon’s Hibs at Easter Road.
